Gift Guide For Your Parents/In-Laws

gift guide for your parents

Sharing is caring!

Today’s gift guide is for your parents or inlaws this Christmas! And these 6 items are sure to have them overjoyed and gracious!


gift guide for your parents

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6


  1. Amazon Echo with Alexa: Is it just me, or are all middle-aged people obsessed with Alexa? I know my parents would use her for just about everything — the weather, the news, music, turning the lights on & off…you name it. I think it’s a great gift idea because of the Show feature, which allows you to video chat! Your in-laws and/or parents will love it!

  2. Calpak Luggage:  If your in-laws or parents are retired and ready to travel the world – they definitely need new, high-quality luggage to take along their adventures! I am obsessed with all Calpak luggage – it is hard-shell, super protective, and very chic if I do say so myself! I use it every time I travel by airplane and I don’t know what I would do without it!

  3. Cappuccino/Espresso Machine: For the mornings, life’s too short for bad coffee. Therefore, make sure your in-laws or parents never have a bad cup of joe again with this luxury cappuccino & espresso machine! It’s easy to use, and you know they’ll be sending you tons of pics every time they use it!

  4. Wine Chiller:  Additionally, for the evenings, if your parents or in-laws are wine lovers, they need this wine chiller! This will keep their bottle of wine or bubbly chilled for hours — perfect for concerts, picnics, parties & more!

  5. Personalized Door Mat:  I feel like many people, not just middle-aged, love anything that is personalized! Or at least I do! It always seems that doormats don’t last longer than one season, so a fresh, new & personalized doormat is the perfect gift for your parents or in-laws, especially when they can use it this upcoming spring!

  6. Personalized Cutting Board: Lastly, along with personalized items, a personalized cutting board it’s the perfect addition to any entertaining or kitchenware collection that any parent or in-law will greatly appreciate and use often!

I hope you found this gift guide for your parents and in-laws that are on your list very helpful!

Be sure to check out the other gift guides as well!

I will see you tomorrow for the next one!



xo, Cydney
